Chris M. Williams, founder and CEO of pocket.watch, a digital-first studio building franchises for Generation Alpha, has been added to the roster of keynote speakers for the TV Kids Festival, which is open for registration free of charge.

A pioneer of online video, Williams has 20 years of proven success in both predicting and capitalizing upon marketplace holes that have dictated the future of media and entertainment. Most recently, he served as the chief audience officer of Maker Studios, and prior to that, he was the founder and CEO of venture-backed startup Take180. Both companies were acquired by The Walt Disney Company, where Williams also launched Disney Online Originals, a division dedicated to the creation of Disney-branded short-form content.

Williams joins the lineup of TV Kids Festival speakers previously announced: M6 Group’s Philippe Bony, WarnerMedia Kids & Family’s Adina Pitt, KiKA’s Sebastian Debertin, M6 Group’s Maud Branly, CBC Kids’ Marie McCann, DreamWorks Animation’s Peter Gal, Bluey’s Joe Brumm, Aardman’s Nick Park, Studio 100’s Hans Bourlon, Common Sense Networks’ Eric Berger, eOne’s Olivier Dumont, Cyber Group Studios’ Pierre Sissmann, M6 Group’s Coralie Boitrelle-Laigle, Serious Kids’ Genevieve Dexter, Jetpack Distribution’s Dominic Gardiner, Dandelooo’s Emmanuèle Pétry-Sirvin, Kidoodle.TV’s Brenda Bisner, CAKE’s Daniel Bays and Atomic’s Jennifer Twiner McCarron, Matt Berkowitz and Richard Goldsmith. Look for more speaker announcements coming soon.

The TV Kids Festival will be streamed live and available on-demand on TVKidsFestival.com. Unlike other events requiring hefty registration fees, attendance to the TV Kids Festival is free. The inaugural TV Kids Festival attracted more than 1,700 participants and 24,000 views.
